BCE’s pre-election offering features the world premiere of a significant new addition to choral literature—Nicholas Cline’s Water Sheds, a setting of observations by environmentalists. Excerpts from Lansing McLoskey’s dramatic Zealot Canticles address the fine line between commitment and radicalism. Finally, William Brooks’s in memoriam reducere studemus examines the death of Anton Webern at the close of World War II in a stunning amalgamation of styles from early Renaissance through 20th century.
